The Ostrava hypermarket of French retail colossus Carrefour in the Czech Republic is drawing up a code of behaviour in a bid to bring to a peaceful end a dispute with a group of Olah romanies who allegedly spend the whole day in the hypermarket and behave inappropriately while there.

The move will see Carrefour become the first hypermarket in the country to impose a set of rules on customers.

The decision to draw up a code of behaviour was taken during talks between managers at the hypermarket, security guards working at the shopping centre in which it is located, and a representative of the romanies, called Olah “King” Jan Lipa. The police were also in attendance.

No details of the proposed code of behaviour have yet been released, but it will apply to all customers shopping in the store.
